Best Days Out Cornwall

When: 6 June 2024 - 6 June 2024

Richard Trethewey Two Halves fundriasing music night

Posted in Events by cata on 22nd March 2024

Thursday 6 June 6.30pm – 9.00pm

Born in Cornwall’s Clay Country, Richard Trethewey is a singer, fiddle and cittern player delivering his distinct take on Cornish music, giving Cornwall a truly authentic voice. Passionate about unearthing near-forgotten gems of Cornish history, Richard breathes life and emotion into what might otherwise be overlooked.

This is a rare opportunity to see Richard performing solo. He will perform material from his new album ‘Two Halves’ as well as some other favourites from his repertoire.

Two Halves presents one side of songs and music inspired by stories from Cornwall’s wonderfully evocative river estuaries. The second half is more akin to his debut album ‘Dig Where You Stand’ and tells stories associated with Cornwall’s industrial heritage.

Richard will also show some of the films he has made which accompany some of the songs from the album including Frenchman’s Creek, Hope in a Jam Jar, Bringing the Harvest Home and Queen of the Cornish Rhine.
